The Woes of White Pants

 
 
 
While my sister was visiting I finally found a pair of white pants that I liked, and didn’t break the bank (it turns out when you’re shopping in the juniors dept. with a fifteen year old some things are a lot cheaper). I love them. They’re so summery and crisp and its so easy to dress them up or down. They’re as easy to put on as regular jeans but they make me feel much cuter. 
 
The problem is, they’re white. I do not live in a sterile laboratory. The first day I got a little red spot on them. It came out. The next time I wore them i touched my pants with my hand that had something gray on it apparently. I am officially incapable of keeping these pants clean. Any tips? 
 
On a significantly more important note – I am on summer break! I have a few hours of work to get done today for a professor before we head out to California bright and early (or dark and early as the case may be) tomorrow! Oh and tonight? We’re doing our second anniversary celebration. I love when holidays manage to last way longer than 24 hours šŸ™‚
 
Its been fun to spend all week reminiscing about our first year of marriage together. Its this crazy combination of “how has it already been a whole year!” and “how is it possibly that two years ago Ben wasn’t in my life?” I was talking about it on the phone with one of my favorite people yesterday (who may or may not have gone ring shopping on my anniversary? best anniversary present for me ever – when these two get married I will be happy as a… well… lets just say I’ll be nearly as happy as I was on my wedding day). She asked if the first year of marriage is really as hard as everyone said it is.  It reminded me of this post I wrote after our first few months. Couple that with the enough sleep and the occasional date night, and marriage is so much easier than spending three hours doing Turabian footnotes and bibliography citations (like I did last night). 
 
What do you think?
Any tips on the first year of marriage (or in my case, the second)?
If you don’t have any tips on marriage at least tell me what you think about white pants!

  1. Seriously, stop being so cute! haha. Those white pants look great on you!

  2. First of all, you are so adorable! Secondly, the good thing about all white is that you can BLEACH them and they will be the same color! Or try one of those Tide (I think) bleach stain remover pins for the small spots. Good luck, girl!

  3. white pants, i cant do it. i just cant.
    they lok nice on you, but i'm just too white and i feel like any pants that aren't dark make my legs look huge.
    so i have never owned any, so sadly i have no advice.
    i would sayyy wear them at night. ahahah idk.

    K

  4. I love the white pants!! Seriously they are so cute! I'm afraid to get them because I don't want them to get dirty!

  5. The white pants look so cute on you. I haven't gotten any yet. but my husband just said a couple of weeks ago that he love them. So.. umm.. I guess I will have to get on that pretty darn quick.

    As for the first year of marriage, I have always heard that it was hard. But I think that it is only true for couples who don't know each other too well. I was just married in January, but we were together for 10(!) years before we married. My husband is my best friend and he knows me better than anyone. So now being married, things are just better. There is nothing hard. Nothing at all. Nothing new. Just the excitement of our public commitment on a deeper level than we already had. I found that our third year of dating was the hardest. Girls and boys can be on their best behavior for one or even two years when the relationship is just brand new. This is especially true if you don't see each other every day. Then boom you get married and move in and all of the personality – good and bad – comes out. That's when it gets tough, I think. But hopefully you've already figured that out about your spouse before you've married him. =)

  6. okay, seriously i love the juniors department and i don't think will ever fully give it up. #sorrynotsorry

    and i think that the first year of marriage is SUPER tough, but totally worth it {obviously}. i think the biggest thing i learned this year is to be able to move on from things and just let go. it is so much more natural to cling to the bad and mope and whine and be angry, but to let go and forgive and love and is so much better in the end.

  7. Love the white pants! Obv I don't have any marriage tips hahah but for white (or light) pants I definitely second the tide-to-go bleach pen idea from Samantha (I bought the most perfect pair of cigarette high-rise mint colored jeans and instantly stained them obviously), or, if it's not pure white, a tide-to-go regular pen. xx

  11. I'm stopping by and returning the blog love from the MNB hop last monday, and am your newest follower šŸ™‚

    You are so brave. I have never been able to wear white pants. I can barely wear a white shirt and keep it clean. I don't even dare to try white pants! lol

    Have a wonderful week!
